Yeah, i agree with Sam.
Lighting will be the biggest hurdle here.
Also... you'll need to remove that small drop shadow on her. It doesn't work, and it doesn't match the room lighting anyway.
As for her scale... if it were me, i'd turn her horizontal and put her on the bed so you could get a...
Sorry this took so long to get to.
Everyone here is rediculously sick.
Anywho... i hope this effort is suitable for you Erienne.
It was actually a fair bit of work, but i loved the challenge.
